A Review of Information on the Settlement of Structures

The paper reviews the methods of predicting the settlement of structures on spread footings and piled foundations. It reports settlement observations on structures and model tests. Reference is made to the stiffness of the structure and its effect on settlement. The limits of permissible settlement to prevent cracking or damage are discussed. S. Rosenak
